Southern California Adventures - Day 3 & 4 - Temecula and Rancho Mission Viejo

July 4, 2014

In the true spirit of 4th of July, the first order of the day...after a quick breakfast, was to pack up the gang and head down to Old Town Temecula to check out the city parade.  :)  I can't even say that I've EVER been to a Fourth of July parade before but it seemed so patriotic and special to experience it while on vacation with our little family.  It was BLISTERING!! but fun to watch Everleigh enjoying the horses, trolley, cars and school bands march by.  

With not much else on the agenda for the day, we headed back to nap, relax and prepare our feast for the evening.  :) 

While the kiddies went down to catch the fireworks that evening, we hung back to hang out with the older kiddies (and put our bear down for the night ;)

Someone didn't last much longer after this picture... She was POOPED!

But before heading to bed... DANCE PARTY!  :)

And combing daddy's hair of course.  ;)

The next day...after a leisurely morning of nothingness, we packed up and said goodbye to Temecula and headed to Chad's cousin's house in Rancho Mission Viejo.  As the men prepared the evenings feast, (only good things can come when TWO chef cousins get together! ;)  the women and children trekked to the neighborhood pool to relax and enjoy the warm afternoon.  :) 

After taking a few minutes to warm up to her new surroundings.. 
our bear wasted no time getting WET!

Such a cute little kiddie area!
